So .. The Bible is fundamental to being Christian, right ?

I would say so. But the reason I suggested that name is:

-Fundamentalist is generally accepted to mean the same as “biblicist”
- Fundamentalist is more well known and understood than “biblicist”

This assumes that *you* mean the same thing by “biblicist” though; the same meaning that is usually understood.

If you mean only that “Bible is fundamental” then it’s really not the same meaning in general usage (which seems a bit odd to me.)

However, if you *don’t* mean biblical literalism, then Fundamentalist would not be a good name - because fundamentalism and literalism are taken as the same in meaning.
